      So ya. I am still in retail but have moved to a bigger, busier store. Saks 5th Ave, the flagship location. Training on computers this week, on the floor next week. Still men's dept but they talk like they expect you to sell the whole store. Let's see how much they mean that when I end up up in shoes w some client's wife, or in some case in cosmetics looking for unscented sunscreen bc hey men have skin too....

          You'd better be making 5th Avenue money if you're working on 5th Avenue, that's all I'm going to say about that. Also, congratulations on the upgrade.


            Congratulations on your new job again!

                  Commas, man. They help get one's point across. Without them, statements like this are humorous. I was nice to Candace earlier, not feeling so nice now. *grin*

                        Thanks K e l l y wjs CODawn twinkletoes aveoturbo Encourager. So far, I like it. And my schedule for the next 3 weeks has zero close one might/open next morning shifts so, 10 points for new boss right off the bat. Off the weekend, starting on floor training on Monday.

                        My lifting was all screwed up this week, so I did a lot of everything today. Altho there was a clusterfuck of ppl all trying to get at the squat rack/barbells /sigh.

                          Squatting on Friday makes sense if your a M-F lifter. Rest the biggest muscle groups over weekend.

                          But whatever, fudge em, if you get your turn at the squat rack take your time to do it right. No sense risking an injury due to fatigue induced poor form or some shit because you were hurrying for some other people. Seriously, don't rush a lift, especially the squat.

                          Just too much risk. I don't mean for it to sound condescending, certainly not how I want it to sound. You aren't at fault, just how this post reads. Not sure how to word it differently atm.


                            aveoturbo I get what you're saying. I actually went lighter on squats (135 vs 155) and did less reps on rdls (5 vs 8)... and only 2 sets at my "heavy" weight vs usual 3 (but that was mostly bc I realized how fatigued I was swapping the plates back and forth and not actually resting) bc I was worried that rushing/resting less on my normal weights/reps would be dangerous. As much as I maybe should of just taken my time and done everything..... my form would of been fucked up from being self consious from being watched anyway... at that point there was literally a line of guys not even pretending to do other shit while they waited (at least I got a damn yoga mat and ran through some easy poses nearby when I was camping it, LOL).

                            Looking at my schedule over the next few weeks I am going to end up w a few other fridays where I am trying to get at the rack..... I am just going to have to get up at 4am and get my tail there when they open so I don't get all annoyed w ppl.


                              My everything hurts, and I don't want to deal w ppl today, so I am not going to my class. Meh. Im going to be a cat today... I may spend a few moments inexplicably running around but mostly I will concern myself with napping, grooming, and eating >.>
